Dear MACE community members,
Assalam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barkatuhu,
Based on advice from the Fiqh Council of North America and ISNA, Inshallah Eid al-Fitr will be celebrated by the MACE community on the 24th of May, 2020.
With the mosque being closed due to COVID-19 crisis, the MACE administration has decided to cancel the Eid al-Fitr prayers at the mosque this year. Families are encouraged to pray Eid salath with their families at home and thereafter listen to the recorded Eid message on the MACE Facebook page.
While we cannot make up for this loss, MACE is planning to have a drive-thru Eid celebration with its community members on the Eid day. Kindly follow the social distancing norms to make this a safe as well as successful event for all of us.
MACE Drive-Thru Eid Celebration:
Date : 24 May, 2020
Time : 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Place: MACE Islamic Center
26901, Chardon Rd,
OH – 44143
Volunteers will help you drive through MACE and collect the goody bags for the kids and snacks for everyone in the car. Only one person wearing a mask will be allowed to collect items from the volunteers as they drive by the tables at MACE. Additionally, no one will be allowed to park or step out of the car. We appreciate your understanding and we hope this will provide a safe and enjoyable opportunity to celebrate EID together.
Every Muslim is required to pay Zakat al-Fitr as a token of thankfulness to Allah for having enabled him or her to observe the obligatory fast. Zakat al-Fitr of $10/person in family is obligatory and should be paid before Eid prayers. While Zakat al-Fitr can also be paid online on MACE website www.maceohio.com<www.maceohio.com>, for the convenience of its community members MACE will have a drive-thru collection of Zakat-al-Fitr as well as zakat and donations on Wednesday, 20th of May 2020 between 5:30 – 7:30 PM.
